We like new ‘Witness', say readers

2007-11-13 00:00

SEEING is believing, and you better believe it that Maritzburgers like the new-look Witness that was launched yesterday. On the streets it was a sell-out, and your e-mails and smss tell us what we want to hear: we've given you what you want.

Msunduzi Mayor Zanele Hlatshwayo joined the launch festivities at The Witness offices early yesterday morning, and complimented the paper on brightening up the city. She expressed the hope that the paper and the municipality would “sing from the same sheet” for the benefit of the city.

Readers said the logic and the look of The Witness is more appealing. Some of the smss read:

“It's world class. The people's paper”, “You deserve a World Cup, I feel sorry for the competitors”, “New look: W=Wicked I=Informative/Inspiring T=Terrific N=New E=Extraordinary S=Striking S= Stunning”.

Some readers thought the red masthead “cheapens” the paper, and some were hoping for a tabloid, but we'll try to please them in other ways.

Carry on reading, and keep telling us what you want.
